Well done was this the first time you claimed for PIP or were you on the old DLA

I was refused it last time I even took it to the tribunal and still lost,

Wow that just goes to show you went from being refused to getting high rate on both it just proves this system does not work, when will they reassess you they normally say 2 years even though we suffer with a lung condition that wont get any better

You forgot to ask how long ago it was I applied, it was July 2013 when I was refused pip at that time I was mild copd and o.a in both hips, I am now severe with copd, still chronic with asthma, o.a in my knees now aswell as my hips,

Seems we have a lot in common I also have server COPD, labial tear in my right hip and chronic lower back pain due to budging discs and trapped nerve. I'm being treated under the pain clinic for back and trapped nerve but they can't do anything for my hip I need a hip replacement.

My argument with this system is if someone has COPD they are never going to improve so why we have to go through all this red tape and wait for over a year is just bloody ridiculous and I would like the rules changed. I would also like to see people like us be awarded for life and not be reassessed in two years or so.
